YoYoNews has your first look at the newest plastic yoyo by industry leader YoYoFactory…the Hubstack Afterglow!
The Hubstack is a new plastic yoyo from YoYoFactory featuring a new body shape that appears to be modeled slightly after their wildly popular Shutter yoyo released last year. The Hubstack features a refined version of the “zero wall” design that YoYoFactory pioneered several years ago, and the Afterglow version comes in glow in the dark plastic with an internal LED light board. The yoyo lights up when it spins, and the light from the LEDs charges the glow plastic, making for a fantastic effect in the dark that basically recharges itself.
The Hubstack Afterglow is the final release in the YoYoFactory Glow Collection and the first release of the Hubstack yoyo, which will be released in a non-glow, non-lighted version later this year. The Hubstack Afterglow is shipping to stores soon, and has a release date of January 27th, 2014. Also released at the same time will be a redesigned version of YoYoFactory’s CzechMate yoyo (signature model for European Champion Vashek Kroutil) with changes to size, weight distribution, and price.
